Creating a Passive Income

Read this page from top to bottom

To get rich quick you can either win the lotto, marry rich or inherit a lot of money, the rest is a process.

You've got a better chance of being hit by lightning than winning the lotto. If you marry rich it's probably just for the money and it's nothing to do with love or devotion. Inheriting a lot of money only happens in movies. 

I hope I have not burst your bubble here, or wait, I actually do want to burst your bubble. Get the idea of "getting rich quick" out of your head right now! It's not going to happen. There is no such thing. I have searched for 3 years and I only made other people and scammers (Is this even a word?) rich. 

I can help you with, "The rest is a process" bit. Is it possible to earn a passive income or extra money? It sure is. I do.
But it's a process. It takes time but in the end it's all worth it.

Do not get confused though with the words "Passive income". If you mention it, people tend to think you just sit and do nothing and the money rolls in. 

Get that idea out of your head as well. Earning an extra income takes work. You have to do something to be able to get money. Once you have established a solid foundation, then you will start to earn passive money. 

On this website I explore ways to earn some extra money which could help supplement your income. If you do really well, you could even earn more than what your job pays you. But you have to do something. 

I give all this information for free. These are methods that I use and that works for me. Other websites and marketers will ask you money for this information. They will wrap this info up in a multicolored candy wrapper and say if you pay, you may open the wrapping and feast on the secrets of their success.  Yawn, whatever.

Now remember, I give you the information for free. You might have to spend some money to get things rolling. You have to decide how serious you are about earning a passive income or earning some extra money. 

"What, now you say we will have to spend money. What gives?" I hear you say.

No you don't have to. You have to ask yourself one question:

"If you earn enough money, why are you reading this page?"

Let me tell you. It's tough out there. Maybe you have lost your job. Maybe you need some extra money to make ends meet. People are getting poorer and poorer. Food prices have gone up. School fees have gone up. Everything has gone up, except your salary. That's, if you get a salary. 

You are reading this page cause you are searching for the hen that lays the golden eggs. You are looking for easy ways to make a lot of money. You heard that the internet is the place where all your dreams come true. The world wide web of opportunity. 

It certainly is possible to make a fortune from the internet, but it's a lot like the lotto. You keep spending money in the hope that you strike it rich some day. Don't spend your hard earned cash on schemes and promises. They rarely work out if ever.

Let's say you want to start a business. How much money are you willing to spend? Ten dollars, twenty a hundred? Probably not. You will have to think about rent, stock and start-up costs. You would probably need to spend thousands of dollars.

You see, the problem is this. When people go to the internet to make money, they're not willing to spend any money but they want to make millions. Do you think that's how it works? No it's not. You have to be serious about it. You have to be motivated to do it. You have to be willing to spend some money to make some money. 

You have to be serious about this. If you're not, then rather look for something else. It breaks my heart to see people buying into systems on the internet and see how they fail because of the empty promises. 

I don't promise anything. I just give you simple ways to get started and with very little capital. But you have to take it serious. Don't just start and let it die a slow death. In that case, rather not start at all.  

You can follow the links at the top of this page to find out more about what I do to earn a passive income. I will just give you a quick rundown of the methods I use. Remember, the info below is just a quick rundown. Please read and understand a method fully before you continue with the next one. 

This website is full of information. Use it. Don't just read the first couple of paragraphs and then think you understand it. Take the time and make the effort. Learn as much as you can.
This is by far my most successful method for earning extra money. It's easy, cheap and it works. It's a MLM or multi level marketing system. 

When people hear the word MLM, they usually say that they are not interested because it's a pyramid scheme. This is unfortunately why lots of people remain poor. They don't do the research and get the facts. They just think it's bad because someone they know have done it and got scammed. 

Get the facts before you just throw it out. Learn about the different sales methods before you just say that all MLM is,is selling door to door. Understand what the difference is between MLM and a pyramid scheme before you judge.  

I earn a honest and good passive income from it. I have been a member for 2 and a half years with no problems whatsoever.  

I believe that this kind of business is really the easiest and cost effective way to go. If you select the right one. BMT or Be Motivated Today really works for me. 

They also have a free 14 day trial and a good team support system. With Be Motivated Today you are not alone. Your upline will be there to guide and help you. No other MLM does this. You don't need large start up capital and you can do it from anywhere.  

Success in BMT does not come from doing nothing. You still have to do the work to earn the income. You have to put in the hours to be successful. The work is not difficult and your personal website has all the training and help you need to get started.

If you are serious about a earning a passive income, then start with BMT. You can read more about it here.

I have other links and pages on BMT on this website. Just follow the links up top. I have several pages dedicated to Be Motivated Today. You can get more information here.
If you have a website then this is also an easy way to generate some income. Google has advertisers that pay for their ads to be displayed on websites. The advertisers bid certain amounts for their ads to be displayed on websites. 

You register with Google's adsense program and then paste Google's adsense code on you website. Ads are then displayed using the code. When someone clicks on the ad, you get a percentage of that money. As simple as that.

You need a website for this and some traffic. This is where it gets tricky. Creating a website is easy, it's getting people to visit it that gets tricky. But there are ways and means to get traffic. 
Affiliate marketing is where you basically sell other peoples stuff and earn a commission. The products could be physical or digital in nature. Physical products could be things like computers or electronics or whatever people are willing to pay you commission for. Digital includes any electronic media such as e-books or programs.

You advertise and sell these products on your website or whatever medium you wish to do so. Again, I have a couple of pages on my website on how you can go about this. 

I also invested in an e-book from Rosalind Gardner. It's called "The Super Affiliate Handbook". She makes a living of affiliate marketing. She really knows her stuff and I have learnt a lot from it. Remember, you don't have to buy the book, but if you feel that this type of business is for you, then maybe you should invest in it. It's quite cheap and is filled with lot's of info.  

It's not called "The Super Affiliate Handbook" for nothing. 

Other marketers sell this information as some secret way to make money. There's nothing secret about it. Most people just don't know about it! That's all.
Just a word of warning here. Forex trading is not for everyone. You can make a lot of money and loose a lot of money very quickly. Learn as much as you can and trade on demo accounts for at least a year before you open a live account. 

I have traded on a live account but have stopped. I'm refining my strategy and testing it on demo. When I'm satisfied that my strategy is working, I will post the results and strategy on my web page. 

I have also created an expert adviser or EA that automatically places trades based on breakouts. It works ok, but won't make you rich. I will make it available on my website soon. PLEASE!! don't use it to trade live. I only created it to write the series on "Do Forex robots and expert advisers really work". 

There are 2 other methods I'm currently testing. The one is with etoro and the other with DiverseFX. See my Forex trading pages for more information on this.

People always say that you don't really need a website to make money on the internet. Well, maybe. I feel it's essential. I don't know of any successful internet marketer who does not own at least one website. 

How will you get web presence if no one knows who you are? It adds credibility to your brand. It shows that you are serious and not just there to make a quick buck. 

I use Yola and Site Build It when I created my websites. With Yola it's really easy and it's not that expensive. I also have a page where I help you create a website from scratch. 

Site Build It offers much more than just creating your own website. They take you through the whole process of market and keyword research, right up to creating your website. You pay for this, but it's worth every penny.

These are my primary methods to create a passive income. Some methods will perform better than others and make you more money than others. This is normal. If you only make, for example, $10 on affiliate marketing, then you can use that $10 to pay your domain name for a year or use it for advertising at AdWords. In the beginning things will be slow, this is also normal, but it will pick up. Just give it some time. 

I'm always on the lookout for other ventures so please return to bapetjo.com to see what's new. I also constantly update my website with new developments and product updates. 

I also provide information on paid for advertising such as Addynamo and Google Adwords. Google's adwords and Addynamo can be a bit daunting but just make sure you understand it before you use it. Knowledge is your best weapon when taking on a venture like this. I have multiple pages on this. Just click and read.

Now, all of this is great and I hope I have made you a little bit more exited about earning a passive income. Unfortunately lot's of people just read and don't do anything. It's great that you read and understand, but you have to implement or do as well. Not just initially, but continue with it. 

Don't give up if you struggle or find it difficult. Very successful marketers had to start somewhere and also found it difficult. If it was easy, everybody would be doing it and making millions without doing a thing!

That's not how it works, but it works. If this makes sense. 

All this information can be overwhelming. At first I struggled to understand all this internet terminology. What on earth is adsense and adwords and what's affiliate marketing and paid for advertising? 

How do I create a website and where do I do it? Is it difficult, can I do it? 

I have been working with computers since 1989 and I only recently learned of all these things. So even if you are a computer nerd there are things that you might not know. I knew nothing about creating websites or all the services that Google offers. 

You can do all of this even if you don't know much about computers. You must be willing to learn though. I will help you learn as much as you can. 

It did not even cross my mind that it could be possible to earn a passive income or make some extra money on the internet. I was willing to learn and set some hours aside a day to keep learning. Just keep at it. Don't let all this info overwhelm you. Take it bit by bit. As you learn you will get more confident.

Like I said earlier, start with Be Motivated Today. Just get going with something. 

I see people fade away a lot. They get really exited in the beginning but then just give up after a short while. These people then say it was a scam and try to make others negative about it. If you quit then quit and move on. Don't slam something if you quit on it.

I have almost given up in the past as well. It's normal. Maybe this is not for you. Good luck on your search for something else. If you do become successful, then please contact me and share your story or information. I'm here to help others. I know what it feels like not to make ends meet.

I have also been retrenched from my job. I know what it feels like when there's no money to pay the mortgage. I found Be Motivated Today and I stuck to it. Some people sign up and then just drop out after a couple of weeks. Some people would sign up and then mail me asking if this really works.

Well, it only works if you want to make it work. I cannot tell you that this will work or not. It works for me cause I wanted to make it work. I can only show you the way, I cannot make you walk it. 

Ok, enough on that. So, how do you find out more? 

This website has links that you can follow to find out more about a topic. Like I said earlier, I constantly update links and content. Always come back and check what's new and what's been updated. 

If you don't understand something, read it again until you understand it. Use Google if you have to to make things clearer. 

Well, that's as much as I can fit in my homepage for now. I wish you all the best in your quest to earn a passive income or earn some extra money.
